This database processes and systematizes an extensive set of statistical data on the social situation of young people in Portugal. The data is produced by several official sources and has, whenever possible, a wide chronological scope beginning in 1960.

The evolution of the social situation of Portugal’s youth is analysed through different perspectives: demography, family, education and training, employment and unemployment, health and risk behaviours, law, social protection, culture and leisure.

This research project has led to the publication of the following books: “Jovens em Portugal: Análise Longitudinal de Fontes Estatísticas (1960-1997)” (Youth in Portugal: Analysis of Longitudinal Data Sources (1960-1997) and “A Condição Juvenil na Viragem do Milénio” (The Youth condition at the Turn of the Millennium).
